Hi Regina,

How to solve this problem

(4ab

(4ab

^{-5})^{-2}My guess is that you want this simplified into all positive exponents.

4

^{-2}a^{-2}b^{-5(-2)}4

^{-2}a^{-2}b^{10}b

^{10}--------

4

^{2}a^{2}b

--------

16a

^{10}--------

16a

^{2}Now the expression is written simplified with all positive exponents.

Hope this helps you..
